A Risk Worth Taking & Giveaway

Something sparkly caught my eye at the Maine Marathon Expo back on October 1st. It was this super adorable sparkle band from Chica Bands.
a perfect match - meant to be?

I felt it was meant to be because it was a perfect match for my Team Sparkle Traveling Skirt and YMX shirt marathon outfit. I took a gamble and bought it right then and there, not knowing if this new headband would do the trick.

A little history here, I have tried several headbands promising a “no slip” running experience. Yet, I find myself readjusting the darn headbands during runs. I had come to the conclusion that no headband will fit me “perfectly” and I will need to just suck it up and readjust as needed if I want to run with a headband.

Well, this cute little headband did the trick – YES IT DID! It held back my hair for 26.2 miles!!!!

I wrote Chica Bands to tell them how awesome their product was and Sarah from Chica Bands sent me another Chica Band to try….

One for Izzy (a chicita band)….

AND one for one of my followers!

My new band is a skinny black sparkly one. I wasn’t sure if it was up for the job, so I tried it out. Wow! Another perfect fit. I love it. I have worn it for yoga, running, and for work. Super adorable and NO SLIP!

I am also very excited about the Chicita bands. The Chica Bands website says they are for little girls from birth to 3 years of age (ages 4 and up are suggested to wear Chica Bands). They fit Izzy perfectly. A great and adorable way to keep that hair out of her face.
